Green Your Town: Community Gardening

Community gardening Help the Sierra Club turn America green by taking your eco-habits to the streets. This week's tips are about how to green your town.

Tip #4: Start a Communal Garden

Community gardens are a terrific way to transform unused space in your town. They beautify neighborhoods, supply low-cost produce, and unite people in learning how to grow resources locally and with their own two hands. Design your garden with your community's needs in mind, and enlist a coordinator (you?) to organize and oversee a work schedule. Donate leftovers to food charities or to a local school lunch program.

Tell us: How has gardening helped your community?
